Record/Play • Love In The Time Of Analog

War, fate, and a broken walkman transcend space and time in this sci-fi love story.

A Film by Jesse Atlas • Written by Aaron Wolfe & Jesse Atlas • Produced by Chris Bryant.

Next Floor by Denis Villeneuve

A Denis Villeneuve Film • Based on an original idea by Phoebe Greenberg.

During an opulent and luxurious banquet, complete with cavalier servers and valets, eleven pampered guests participate in what appears to be a ritualistic gastronomic carnage. In this absurd and grotesque universe, an unexpected sequence of events undermines the endless symphony of abundance.

Shown in over 200 festivals worldwide. Winner of nearly 60 international prizes, amongst others:

• Prix Canal + for best short film, Semaine de la Critique, Cannes Film Festival 2008.
• Genie & Jutra Awards for Best Live Action Short Drama (2009).


In a not too distant future, societies of all countries come to rely on an intricate network of artificial intelligence devices designed to bring efficacy to man’s life. Yet, man continues to devour himself in useless wars. A strong political hierarchy now divides all powers into three factions, and A. I. devices rapidly gain ground as efficiency becomes a priority.

As social revolts grow worse everyday, authorities seek ways to control their citizens. They decide to carry out a series of tests that will determine not only whether some crucial powers can be transferred to non human entities, but also whether man is ready to yield those powers.
The world has become a cell for all man and women, who withstand and endure their lives, rather than living them. Machines might have found a solution.

From now on, you are set free. ..

Modern Ruin: Black Hole

The first half of a film by Jeff Frost • 150,000 photographs in the making combining time lapse footage of riots and optical illusion paintings.

Modern Ruin is a contemplation of the idea that creation and destruction is the same thing (this half of the film focuses on destruction). The white hole from which our universe sprang, and the blackness into which it may disappear testify to as much, yet these bookends of existence are inadequate to address everything in between.

Madame Tutli Putli

This stop-motion animated film takes viewers on an exhilarating existential journey into the fully imagined, tactile world of Madame Tutli-Putli. As she travels alone on the night train, weighed down with all her earthly possessions and the ghosts of her past, she faces both the kindness and menace of strangers. Finding herself caught up in a desperate metaphysical adventure, adrift between real and imagined worlds, Madame Tutli-Putli confronts her demons.

Directed by Chris Lavis & Maciek Szczerbowski.
